In the demanding world of Systems Administration, the challenge has been to integrate full-featured, reliable solutions within mandated budget constraints. The SCS480 Secure Console Server from Thinklogical answers this challenge with features, performance and a surprisingly affordable price per port. The SCS480 can provide access and management of any combination of serial devices; servers, routers, workstations, LAN/WAN devices, and more. The SCS480 is a high performance console port management solution incorporating OpenSSH for secure authentication and encryption, and support for DHCP networks. The administrator assigns each user’s access rights. Users can then connect to only the devices they are authorized to access. When access to network devices is key the SCS480 provides management of serial console ports directly through the network or from a local terminal. Remote access is achieved via SSH, PPP or through an external modem. The access flexibility of the SCS480 make it perfectly suited to management of remote server installations. The SCS480 provides a 256K true FIFO buffer for each device port providing a 400+ screen audit trail to assist with diagnostics should an attached device fail. By allowing access to original panic messages, problems can be quickly corrected and downtime reduced. The SCS480 is fault tolerant and will not cause attached devices to fail should the secure console server lose power. The design of the SCS480 provides isolation between the user terminal and the server or device, eliminating the terminal as a point of failure.
